GetSupportedSymbologies Method

Summary

Gets a list of all the barcode symbologies (types) supported by LEADTOOLS.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
C++
public static BarcodeSymbology[] GetSupportedSymbologies() 

Public Shared Function GetSupportedSymbologies() As BarcodeSymbology() 

+ (NSArray<NSNumber *> *)supportedSymbologies 

public static BarcodeSymbology[] getSupportedSymbologies() 

public: 
static array<BarcodeSymbology>^ GetSupportedSymbologies();  

Return Value

An array of BarcodeSymbology enumeration members that lists all the barcode symbologies (types) supported by LEADTOOLS.

Remarks

The GetSupportedSymbologies returns all the barcode symbologies (types) supported by LEADTOOLS. Depending on the level of unlocked support and availability of the back-end barcodes assemblies, not all of the supported types may be available. For example, if the Leadtools.Barcode.QrRead.dll assembly is missing, QR read support will not be available to your application. Similarly, if the Leadtools.Barcode.QrWrite.dll assembly is missing, QR write support will not be available.

To get a list of the barcode symbologies available for reading, use BarcodeReader.GetAvailableSymbologies and to get a list of the barcode symbologies available for writing, use BarcodeWriter.GetAvailableSymbologies.

To get the friendly name of any barcode symbology, use BarcodeEngine.GetSymbologyFriendlyName.

Example

This example lists all the barcode symbologies supported by LEADTOOLS. Then, it will list all the symbologies currently available (if correct support is unlocked and back-end runtime assembly is found) for reading and writing.
